    Default Free. broken Asus A7N8X and DFI WT70-EC

    Seeing if there's any interest in these before I throw them out. I'm in PDX area, so free pickup, otherwise pay shipping. They fit in USPS Priority A boxes, so if you're west coast, shipping should be < $10.

    Will NOT split motherboard from accessories.

    Asus A7N8X
    All the large caps are bulging and need to be replaced.
    Includes IO Shield and some USB Bracket

    DFI WT70-EC
    Has some bulging medium sized caps; actually POST's last I tried ~year ago.
    CPU and heatsink/fan is not included
    I have an IO Shield (not pictured), but need to find it.
    Includes some RDRAM, I believe it to be 2x 64MB and 2x 128MB

    Pictures are here (PM/Post here if it expired):

    Don't know about the Diamond Flower board, but which version of the A7N8X do you have? Might be worth recapping and putting an old CPU to work...

    Pegatron, ASUS and ASRock gear (Pegatron owns the latter two) is always a PITA to recap because they universally print component and board masks backwards. Every one of the hundred or so boards of theirs I've worked on has been that way for every component.

    You have to force yourself to ignore the labels, else everything will explode and go on fire when you power the board up again (know this from experience.) It's an irritating experience if you have to repair Pegatron gear followed by literally anything else, as virtually every other manufacturer follows component labeling standards.

    If you don't get any takers for the A7N8X, I'll take it.

    When it comes to caps, I don't go by the silkscreen--I go by the component that I just removed. I learned about ASUS boards the hard way...

    The DFI board is Socket 423 i850 chipset. Unless you have a 423-to-478 adapter, this board probably isn't going to be interesting--and the RDRAM thing too. Still, it's got some ISA slots, which on P4 boards isn't too common.

    To be clear on a couple of points:

    1. The A7N8X is vanilla, no Deluxe, -E, or whatever other myriad of SKU's Asus has.

    2. The DFI S423 board does NOT have ISA. It is a CNR slot on the bottom. There are three pictures, and one of them is an Asus TX-97XV, which I'm sorry if it added to the confusion.

    Well I can't seem to edit or update my post, but the A7N8X and DFI WT70-EC have both been mailed out to their respective purchasers.
